Shaping embroidery

This weekend I’ll be starting a course in embroidery as an artistic expression.

The course will run through the year and be mostly online, however this first installment and three more spread over the year will be at Sätergläntan. This has been THE place for courses in traditional crafts in Sweden since 1922 and I’ve long wished to visit.

In preparation for the weekend I needed to pack some white linen fabric and thought I’d repurpose a the fabric from a project I’ve tired of. So I ripped out all the stitches.

I’m leaving some images of that here as a trace of the previous project.
